Plug plants can be planted directly into flower pouches. For baskets, beds and window boxes, pot up plugs and miniplugs for transplanting at a later date. Grow them on in bright, frost-free conditions, watering sparingly until plugs are fully rooted in. When all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise busy lizzie plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days, prior to planting in their final positions.
Grow busy lizzies in any well drained soil, in sun or semi shade. Feed and water frequently throughout the summer to promote an endless supply of colourful busy lizzie flowers.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
